(Not So) Bad Paintings Of Barack Obama

From the (all too modest) website, Bad Paintings Of Barack Obama:




Actually, we wouldn’t call these bad paintings.

For they do capture much of Mr. Obama’s ‘essence.’ (Especially the one with the Mexican flag flying atop the White House.)

Which is the goal of real art, after all.

(Thanks to Gipper for the heads up.)

    Watch for them on walls and buildings in your neighborhood!
    We cannot do enough to worship the Anointed One; our very souls are at risk!
    He is our savior, our only hope but don’t just take my word for it, ask him.

    I would hang the one with the Mexican flag in my powder room, it’s quite apropos.

    Just wait! Next will come oversize statues of The One with the outstretched hand. Don’t laugh, I’m sure in San Fran some pothead artist is thinking it up right now and saying, “dude, wouldn’t it be so cool”.

    I can’t for the life of me figure out how and why anyone would compare this guy to Lincoln? Other than being from the same state, name five things Obama has done other than be black?

      L: polarized the nation and brought it to civil war; O: we’re close!
      L: was married to an ugly woman with mental problems: O: Ditto.
      L: was a lawyer, but a bad one; O: Ditto.
      L: has rhetorical flourish, but limited experience in the weighty matters of state; O: Ditto
      L: was shot at a play; O: made a play that shot the economy.
      L: trampled the constitution to meet a national crisis; O: created a national crisis to trample the constitution.
      L: compared to and characterized as an ape; O: let’s not go there!

      I personally see a lot of parallels…

      Brad, I was asking myself that very question today. I can’t for the life of me figure out how he thinks he can compare with Lincoln. Or what he has ever done that would even come close to a comparison.

      But oldswimcoach, you set me straight! :-D

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      By golly Coach, you’ve set the record straight. Thx. :-)

    Wow. In more than a few of these, he appears to be a pimp.

    Is that a White House “grill” I spy?

    And it was said comedians wouldn’t be able to make fun of him.

  7. imnewatthis says:

    He looks hot in the top one.
    Too bad there’s not much else positive I can say for the guy.

  8. greasywrench says:

    Wasn’t the sixth picture down really Hugo Chavez? Or maybe they’re one and the same.

  9. TwilightZoned says:

    My personal favorite is the “green” one. It should really represent a Martian because I still can’t figure out what planet he came from.

  10. mrfocus says:

    where’s the teleprompter?

  11. Liberals Demise says:

    In most of these he is “TOO” black.(right Jesse?)
    Personally……the Great Seal of the Mexican Chicken flag over the White House is a bit much….but it beats the Sickle & Hammer Red flag he sleeps under.

  12. MinnesotaRush says:

    I’m beginning to understand why so much dough got thrown at “art” in the stimulus bill after seeing some of these. Geeeeeesh!

    • Liberals Demise says:

      My fav is the 2 cops and the monkey with holes in him on the ground.
      Can I get 2 (two) 8×10 glossies framed?

  13. pinandpuller says:

    At least we know what Phillip Michael Thomas has been doing since Miami Vice.

  14. jobeth says:

    Its not only paintings of “the one”

    I went into a large fabric chain today and up on the shelf that held the fleece (really appropriate place for it) there was a whole bolt of blanket fleece that had a large picture of our “dear leader” with “44th president” under his likeness.

    I nearly gagged!

    What idiot would want to lay under THAT?!

  15. brad says:

    In a few Asian countries, 4 is a bad luck number. Obama is the 44th President. I wonder what his Chinese symbol would look like?

    His ears look like doors open on a trash truck.
